Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2009-04-20 21:00:42 UTC
When run against the krb5-libs package, rpmlint-0.87-1.fc11 is printing a hidden-file-or-dir warning about the man page for the ".k5login" file (/usr/kerberos/man/man5/.k5login.5.gz).  The man page documents the ~/.k5login file.

There doesn't seem to be strong precedent for how to deal with things which start with "." -- bash package includes a man page for its '.' builtin, but the mutt package removes the "." from .muttrc.  I figure we can just accept the upstream name.

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2009-05-18 19:43:16 UTC
Agreed, warning for this man page will be filtered out in the next rpmlint package release.
